Existential Dance Crisis Support Group First Bimonthly Meeting
Any creative endeavor comes with extreme highs and lows, and belly dancing is no different. Katie Bircher and Elizabeth Joy would like to invite you to become a member of the Existential Dance Crisis Support Group. There are two ways in which you can participate.
First, there is a FB group. This group is a safe and confidential online space for belly dancers to discuss their individual dance journeys - with all their successes and challenges - and receive moral support, validation, and advice from fellow dancers. As an added resource for practical advice, we encourage (but not require) group members to participate in a guided online discussion of books on the creative process, beginning with Twyla Tharp’s The Creative Habit.
The second way in which to participate is by joining us at casual bimonthly get-togethers for general discussion, book discussion, costume stitch (without bitch), potluck, wine drinking, and enjoying one another’s good company. The first meeting will occur on November 22nd from 2:00 - 5:00 pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the meeting address.
Belly Dance Lineage Survey
Amity Alize of Raq-On Dance in Lebanon, NH is embarking on a very cool project of tracing belly dance lineage in America. She is collecting information from belly dancers in the United States to find as much of our "blood lines" as possible. Her goal is to get responses from at least 1,000 belly dancers in the United States. Take her survey here. If you would rather not provide information online, you can print out the survey, complete it, and send it to Amity. Directions are on the survey.
